T-shirt printing methods

Nov 06, 2012 @ 14:16
Was just wondering what the best method of printing a t-shirt would be? Not making a whole load, literally just printing one for myself - just don't particularly want it looking extremely tacky and cheap, so any help on what to do would be great

Aight safe man. Any idea on how fast these fade? Might be using the t-shirt for an art portfolio and the last thing I want is for the tee to fade or flake before I present it init

Best way if its just for a presentation is print on iron on transfers get a scalpel and cut the design out carefully and iron on, this way it wont fade at all if its not worn and just put into a portfolio.

DTG is good if its being worn lasts around 40 washes if you get a decent place before it starts to fade

Vinyl printing if its just a simple silhouette, it'll be plastic-y but it wont fade at all.

or If it is just 1 colour you can get around 10 screen printed cheap which is the best method of printing tees available.

Hope this helps man, I've working in around this industry a while so I think these are the only options for what you're wanting.

Yeah I think I'm gonna go for the DTG option - want to print a piece of work I've done on my computer onto a tee for both wear and presentation, feel it would look quite good. Just wanted to know the method with the best outcome. Thanks a lot man
